Abandoned Love

Bob Dylan

 GCadd9DG
 My heart is telling me, I love you still

Verses:

 GD/F#Em
 I can see the turning of the key
 CC/BD
I've been deceived by the clown inside of me
 BmBm7C
I thought that he was righteous but he's vain
 GCadd9DG
 Something's telling me, I wear the ball and chain

(same chords throughout)
 GD/F#Em
 My patron saint is a-fighting with a ghost
 CC/BD
He's always off somewhere when I need him most
 BmBm7C
 The Spanish moon is rising on the hill    
 GCadd9DG
 But something's telling me, I love you still    

 GD/F#Em
 I come back to the town from the flaming ruins
 CC/BD
But when I see you in the street I begin to swoon
 BmBm7C
 I love to see you dress before the mirror 
 GCadd9DG
 Won't you let me in your room one time, before I finally disappear

 GD/F#Em
 Everybody's wearing a disguise
 CC/BD
To hide what they've got left behind their eyes
 BmBm7C
 But me I can't cover what I am            
 GCadd9DG
 Wherever their children go, I'll follow them    

 GD/F#Em
 I'm marching the parade of liberty
 CC/BD
But as long as I love you I'm not free 
 BmBm7C
 How long must I suffer such abuse         
 GCadd9DG
 Won't you let me see you smile, before I turn you loose

 GD/F#Em
 I've given up the game I've got to leave
 CC/BD
The pot of gold is only make believe    
 BmBm7C
 The treasure can't be found by men who search
 GCadd9DG
 Who's gods are dead and whose queens are in the church

 GD/F#Em
 We sat in an empty theater and we kissed
 CC/BD
I asked you please to cross me off your list
 BmBm7C
 My head tells me it's time to make a change
 GCadd9DG
 But my heart is telling me, I love you but you're strange

(Harmonica solo, same chords)

 GD/F#Em
 So one more time at midnight near the wall
 CC/BD
Take off your heavy makeup and your shawl
 BmBm7C
 Won't you descend from the throne from whence you sit
 GCadd9DG
 And let me feel your love one more time, before I finally abandon it

Bm Bm7 C C/B Cadd9 D D/F# Em G
